I had a salad. I could drink the homemade vinaigrette it's so good. I taste tested both of my daughters homemade soups & those were delicious too! The mini dessert at the end was a fun surprise.

This has to be one of the most delicious little cafe restaurants I have ever visited. And the little dessert that they brought us, whoa, amaZing. It was the carrot cake. I ordered French onion soup and Cobb salad. It lives up to the description. Must go!

We were not familiar with the menu and asked for time. We were told just stand here and I'll explain because it is going to get very busy. One friend... More

We're so pleased with decision to stop at The Corner Cafe. We were warmly greeted at the door and informed about menu choices. We had the greek salad which was delicious and artfully... More
